Goodbye S.S. – a poem by Spike Milligan

Go away girl, go away
and let me pack my dreams
Now where did I put those yesteryears
made up with broken seams
Where shall I sweep the pieces
my God they still look new
There’s a taxi waiting at the door
but there’s only room for you

Spike Milligan

Spike Milligan is mostly known for comedy, whether playing his part in the Goon Show, or in his nonsense poetry, but he had a deeply soulful side to his nature, and poured out emotions in some of his works which might surpise those who haven’t read beyond his lighter works.

Best wishes
